it in a safer, cleaner way than they are, but the obama administration put the just say no to coal. that cuts out half of the present source of electrical power in the country. tell me how a country can grow, a country that grows and a country that needs more energy. you tell me how this country can have hybrid vehicles that are pugged into the wall if we don't provide more electricity. i mean, this is like living in some kind of fantasy land. this great wonderful hybrid vehicles have got to get pluggedded into the wall. if we had hybrid vehicles driving around the country, we need 35% more electricity. well, we're on a -- we are on a path to less electricity, not more. 50% is gone. that's going to keep going down because we put a stop on coal. okay, where else do we get electricity from? well, we get it from nuclear power. nuclear, we have 104 nuclear power plants. they supply anywhere from 20%-25% of the electricity. in my city, it's 25%. nuclear power, we have not licensed a nuclear power plant other than one in the last 30 years. the others are getting real old, and there's no appetite on
before the obama administration, and we are so focused the present -- we did a conference at the old center i think for a five years ago on this very topic of secrecy. and i went through the transcript last night, and now that i've listened to did i want to say, we think we're having the same old conversation but we are not. we are not really looking towards solutions and remedies, and where we stand in terms of the interests of these between long and policy actually. so what do you know it or not we have actually come some distance, which is what the next that is going to talk about. so get some coffee, get some cookies and come back. thank you. [applause] >> [inaudible conversations] >> wednesday from the british house of commons, prime minister's question time. because of daylight savings time in the uk, this week prime minister's questions will air at eight am eastern instead of its usual 7 a.m. you can see it live here on c-span2. now more from the fordham law school conference. next, we hear from former cia acting general counsel john rizzo, and former justice department inspec
the obama -- i mean, from the bush to the obama administration in the transition. the presidential candidates, even the nominee's authority do not get really president-elect bush called the stuff in terms of regimes. the two candidates i assume governor romney is getting these now. the nominees of the party are offering intelligence briefings by career people, but the analytical or what we used to call briefings, which is one of the many euphemisms from cia's panchayat to purge from my memory because i can't get it out of my head. but their analytical. they are not operational. they're not given a lot of specific details about agents and agent operation that only happens once the election takes place. once it is in the case of the new president, obviously a president obama is reelected, this will not happen. but that is when they get the review above the ongoing covert programs. that is some president-elect obama first had a detailed briefing on the enhanced interrogation program. by that time, much of it, or suppose "the new york times" probably had 85% of it. but that wasn't the
to address the panel. you know have six prosecutions in the obama administration after three prior to -- after three prior prosecutions. you now have a press that is not just the new york times, not just the "washington post," but wikileaks, individuals no longer needing the mainstream media to put documents, formerly classified documents into the public environment. so it is a changing landscape on both sides. different kind of media and i think a different attitude in government, at least that is what appears to us. the rise and concerns about terrorism and then the concern for government secrecy, and the ability to transfer large amounts of data electronically. you know, if you think back to the pentagon papers, daniel ellsworth has to come to the new york times or a paper like the new york times to get the secret's out, and that was the only way to make them public, not so now. when the government wanted to do terrible things, they actually had to send people to break into his psychiatrist office. no longer necessary. they now have other tools for doing those kinds of things. i
've increased the number of people in poverty over the last two years of the obama administration is outrageous. 15% of the people in america under the party level that we've never had before since the great depression. this administration has failed us. we talk about balancing the budget he didn't cut spending in the state legislature, he raised taxes and raised on employment to 14% and caused businesses to leave the state in droves. thank you. >> moderator: mr. mcdowell bought policies would you restore to the safety net and move people out of poverty? mcdowell: we want to work and we are ready to work. we have to keep taxes low on the small businesses so they can grow for the future and hire people. keep taxes low for working families because we buy their goods and services. and we'll spend our money we've to look at the bureaucratic reforms replace the ones that are not working or get rid of them and have abundant natural resources in michigan we have our land and so many opportunities for the tourism industry to grow. we have these free trade deals that are hurting us because of so many jo
% enrichment activities. but the key problem here is that the obama administration, like the bush administration before it, refuses to acknowledge clearly iran's right to enrich uranium on its own soil. even if the obama administration, and there are rumors they are think of doing this after they're elected, were to offer iran a bigger carrot, as if the iranians were donkeys, and a final shot at diplomacy, there is no indication that the obama administration is willing to clearly recognize iran's right to enriched uranium on its own soil. and, therefore, there won't be a deal. even if there's no deal and iran doesn't collapse, some policy elites continue to posit that sanctions and their version of diplomacy is all worth it. it is worth any and because iranians, middle eastern publics, and americans most importantly will come to see that iran's is suffering and inability to get a deal on the nuclear issue is the iranian government's fault. and, therefore, it will be understandable, and even justified for the united states in the end to strike iran militarily. but we should have no
the treasury in terms of what to do next with the gse is. and presumably, an obama administration would follow something along those lines after dealing with the fiscal cliff and tax reform and all the other issues that are on the agenda. what about romney administration? what sorts of proposal, if any, have been articulated? >> well, let me make it clear that i did not say that there had been a proposal by the administration. they produced a long awaited white paper in january of 2011. a government solution, he plans solution, or a hybrid solution. i am not being facetious in saying that. so we haven't had a proposal from either side. the mortgage market has changed because of that and i think that the republicans and the administration, as they came in, would want to go more towards a free-market kind of solution without any gse. i would hope that the suggestion that i made and the mortgage bankers association made would be seen as something that both sides could live with, and that it is largely a private capital solution. there is not a freddie or fannie. they're our are capital companies
% of the time tester supported the job killing policy of the obama administration. if we want to get people wack to do we can't do things like pass obamacare. it stifles the economy, costs job and ultimately doesn't reform health care as it's intented to do. supporting regulation like the -- that does in fact cost 35 jobs. it's going to take billions of collars out of the economy. and the stimulus, it adds up to a trillion dollars to the debt. it was a failed stimulus. it didn't work. we need to -- liberating main street and believing that is the past path for supporting government or more government control. >> moderator: senator tester, your response. tester: i want to thank you. i want to introduce my family. my one daughter, and kristy and james and my other daughter and 60% of the grandkids are here. it is good have james here, he was hunting and there was doubt whether he was going to show up for the debate. look, jobs are absolutely critically important. if you take a look what's wrong with washington, d.c., folks don't work together. people are partisan, terrorist -- there's a long list
spending. "the wall street journal" gave a report that the amount of spending under the obama administration and a timeout to say was the slowest rate of growth, and even that's not sure. the reason i'm in this whole situation run of congress is because this country has turned in the wrong direction. this country is turned away from the middle class and forgot what made this gray. it's not fair anymore and people understand they are not getting the same opportunity. it's time for the country to dream big again and believe in the middle class and bring people forward into the middle class. we need to educate our children. we need to rebuild infrastructure, communication and transportation structure. we have to take care of older people and make sure we all have an opportunity to succeed. this election is about fairness, opportunity and the selection is who will have the site envisioned to go forward and ask for your vote. >> moderator: on behalf of or sponsor any error he new hampshire and wbin come would like to thank the candidates and you for joining us for this evenings deb
foreign policy. the obama administration said terrorists were behind the murder of christopher stephens. should the u.s. have known more about what was going on and libya, have better security for people? what more needs to be done to fight terrorism? gibson: i've taken a classified resort cannot go into details here. it's arty apparent that we made mistakes. the president has come forward and taken responsibility for that. clearly more should've been done done. what port right now is the people of the losses of the families, that we learn what happened, that we don't rush to judgment. we certainly will find the perpetrators and there will be justice for those who did this. but then it's important we learn from these experiences. i will tell you that i oppose military operations in libya last year and i say that after very careful consideration and thought. i spent a lifetime and national security, but he also gained weight tank and act differently. absolutely winning the world's strongest military to protect this would be a deterrent, to protect her terrorist way of life. we should be
-dollar website. one day i went there and saw how much money i spent -- how much money the obama administration spent. it's a $531 million. that stimulus bill didn't work at all. that was a complete failure and waste of money that we are still paying interest on. >> moderator: we call the time. our next question. >> moderator: if nothing happens, this congressional district is scheduled to have a large number of post offices close. what would you propose to do with to deal with the debt of the post offices? gill: i think a large part of the debt relating to the postal service is due to the fact that career politicians in washington dc set up a scheme by which the postal service had to fund 75 years into the future with respect to retirement and future pension costs in health care costs. i think it would go a long way towards restoring solvency and it being endorsed by numerous workers. but look towards dinner for them when i get washington dc. davis: when one runs for congress the better part of the decade, what has to happen when we talk about overall spending in washington? we have to ensure
